Antonio Gates caught a 14-yard yard scoring pass from Philip Rivers on the game's opening drive to snap San Diego's streak of six straight quarters without a touchdown and give the Chargers a 7-0 lead against the Kansas City Chiefs on Thursday night. It was San Diego's first touchdown since Gates caught an 11-yard pass in the first half against Denver on Oct. 15. That score gave San Diego a 24-0 lead, but Peyton Manning rallied the Broncos to a 35-24 win. The Chargers got only two field goals from Nick Novak in a 7-6 loss at Cleveland on Sunday, their third straight defeat. After San Diego scored, Kansas City went on a 17-play drive that ended when Dwayne Bowe fumbled after a 10-yard reception...The Chiefs had six turnovers in a 37-20 home loss to the Chargers on Sept. 30. Demorrio Williams caused the fumble and Quentin Jammer recovered.
